The Open Society University Network: global mobility on the rise

  • Thursday 15 Sept
  • Upper walkway, Level 1, Fira

Students need opportunities to gain global experience, and virtual exchange is simply not enough. The Open Society University Network – a ‘coalition of the willing’ of 40+ higher education institutions worldwide – has dedicated resources to setting up a scholarship programme enabling north–south and south–south semester mobility actions for students who otherwise would not have the economic background to take part. This poster aims to encourage other institutions to join the initiative.
